The mention of old-time general stores often brings back fond memories. These businesses not only provided a variety of essential and interesting items to a community, they were also places where you might relax briefly, buy refreshments and catch up with friends and neighbors about area news. A nostalgia remains for these general stores and a few remain operational.
